Abstract

This paper compares the active and passive projector nonlinear gamma compensation methods for phase error reduction. The active method modifies fringe patterns before their projection to ensure sinusoidality; the passive method, in contrast, compensates for the phase error after capturing those distorted sinusoidal fringe patterns. Our study finds that the active method tends to provide more consistent high-quality fringe patterns regardless of the amount of projectors defocusing; yet the effectiveness of the passive method is diminished if the measurement condition deviates from the calibration condition. Experimental results will be presented to demonstrate the differences between these two nonlinear gamma compensation methods.
